      These stories were a special treat for me, because two things I particularly like are Austin and architecture, for separate reasons. In this collection of stories, I got to experience them both.David Heymann builds words and paragraphs as beautifully as I imagine his architecture is-- just as intuitive and interesting.

      This work of fiction stands out - in many places it reads like a page from real life in Austin. Its undertone is tragic as it describes how the architect compromises his sense of design, sense of ethics even, to accommodate careless clients.
